That's kind of like being pwned, only by a feline --- and it has happened to Jimbo:

Congrats, Jim! Now you have another boss in the house! :-)

Blogger v. WordPress

At the suggestion of Randy (of Secular Franciscan fame), I had a look at the WordPress blogage site, and what all was involved with it.
I was left feeling a bit less than impressed: they don't allow users to upload their own tools/accessories (understandable, of course), and want to charge varying amounts in monthly fees for anything more than basic blogging.
Blogger, on the other hand, either offers a wide variety of add-ins, or provides links to third parties that have services compatible with Blogger.
Since transferring my old Different Lemming entries wasn't all that important to me, the flexibility and openness of Blogger settled things for me.

Apparently, Blogger will export to something vaguely WordPress-like, but can't import data from a WordPress blog (which is what ADL was done in/with).

To get my Different Lemming posts into Blogger, I'd have to do manual copy-and-paste for each and every post I wanted to transfer.

Now, don't get me wrong... y'all are nice people and everything, but I'm not real wild about the idea of going through all that to get stuff from the old blog to here.


I previously had another blog, A Different Lemming, hosted on my own server, but a variety of factors has caused me to have to shut it down for an indeterminate period of time.

But since I want to continue blogging, I'm firing up this blog as an interim-to-permanent substitute.

I'm going to see if I can transfer entries from my ADL blog to here, but I'm not making any guarantees or promises.
